Chandler Area Mazda Dealers Off A Quick Look At
The 2019 Mazda CX-9

When it comes to the current lineup of Mazda vehicles, a lot of focus has been given to the stunning CX-3 and CX-5 crossover SUVs. Of course, if you want that incredible Mazda styling in a larger, more practical package, Chandler area Mazda dealerships also have the sensational full-size, three-row 2019 Mazda CX-9 for you.

With the introduction of the new Signature trim, the 2019 Mazda CX-9 is offered in four different trim levels at dealerships like the Chandler area Mazda dealers. The range still begins with the entry-level Sport model and progresses to the Touring, Grand Touring and the Signature.

Like a number of other larger crossover SUVs, the 2019 Mazda CX-9 has a single powertrain. This is a Mazda though, and that means much thought, effort and development have gone into the way this model drives, handles and performs. Under the hood is a 2.5-liter turbocharged inline-four that develops 250 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.

This modern powertrain delivers a similar amount of power and performance as the aging V-6 engines found in many rivals, but it's worth mentioning the power rating is 227 hp if the CX-9 is run on regular instead of premium fuel. Front-wheel drive is standard for all four trim levels, and all-wheel drive is available with every model.

Trim Levels For Choice

The four trim levels in the 2019 Mazda CX-9 lineup offer a good range of choice and value for buyers on different budgets. The entry-level Sport model feels anything but entry-level, with its standard 18-inch alloy wheels, cloth upholstery, three-row seating, Bluetooth audio streaming and phone connectivity, a 7.0-inch Mazda Connect infotainment system, cruise control and tri-zone automatic temperature control.
